A panic-based, overreaction is destroying our healthcare systems

On April 10 I did a blog post entitled, “When you prepare for something that is not coming, you just may destroy yourself.”

From my post:

“Based upon models created by “experts,” hospitals and healthcare facilities have set everything aside to deal with the thousands of anticipated Wuhan virus cases. We have shutdown and basically crashed our economy.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) – funded by Bill Gates – created models to predict how many Americans would die of the Wuhan virus. These numbers were used in anticipation of determining the number of beds needed to treat Wuhan virus victims at hospitals.

Sean Davis at The Federalist has done a good job of tracking the “experts” and their predictions. Turns out they aren’t so “expert” at all. Their numbers have continuously been revised to lower numbers. Or as they say, “our estimates will change, much like weather forecasts adjust.”

Using the IHME models, hospitals began postponing routine surgeries and treatments. It turns out that hospitals are not as full of the anticipated number of Wuhan virus patients. So what are they doing now?”

Now, due to over-reaction and panic created with GARBAGE models, hospitals are furloughing employees and cutting hours and pay. See the following examples:

“Mayo Clinic to furlough or cut pay of 30,000 employees”

From the MSN story: Mayo Clinic is furloughing or reducing the hours of almost half its workforce as the nonprofit medical center tries to stop the financial bleeding from the coronavirus pandemic.

Mayo Clinic began furloughing an undisclosed number of supplemental and contract employees in late March as it started to deal with the “unprecedented challenges” of COVID-19. The nonprofit medical center employs 70,000 people in multiple states.”

“California hospital system implements pay cuts, furloughs for 14,000 workers amid pandemic”

From The Hill: “A California hospital system announced plans last week to institute pay reductions and furlough some workers amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that a letter sent to Stanford Health Care staff last week indicated that employees could opt for a 20 percent pay reduction between this week and July 4, or decide instead to use paid time off for the period. Employees could also choose to accept a furlough and apply for unemployment benefits.

“Carilion Clinic (Roanoke Valley, VA) announces furloughs, pay cuts”

From The Roanoke Times: “Carilion Clinic announced that it will cut pay for executives, trim hours for some employees, furlough others and delay expansion projects.

The moves are in line with actions by health systems across the country as a response to the financial toll caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Carilion has seen a sharp decline in revenue as outpatient visits and surgeries are halted, and has taken on unexpected expenses in purchasing equipment, medications and supplies and readying units for infectious patients.”

Roanoke Valley has a population of nearly 100,000 people, 154 Wuhan virus cases and five deaths.

Governor Coonman has extended Virginia’s “Stay At Home Order” until June 10.

Wuhan virus could leave Virginia shut down until a vaccine is developed

The Wuhan virus has been a dream come true for bureaucrats who want to limit freedoms, control the masses, and implement new “rules” that will not allow a society to function, thrive and grow.

In order to “flatten the curve,” business were shut down, 26 MILLION people lost their jobs and life as we know it completely changed.

The goal of “flatten the curve” has morphed into “we need more testing” to now this in Virginia: We need a treatment or vaccine before reopening our state. The new goal post in Virginia includes “a decline in both the percentages of positive cases per day and hospitalizations for a consecutive 14 days.”

According to the Richmond-Times Dispatch, Gov. Ralph Northam outlined “Phase One” of lifting public restrictions that would include a continuation of social distancing, remote work and wearing masks in public.

Of course, no time frame was presented yet State Health Commissioner Norman Oliver told the Times-Dispatch that he thought Phase One would be in effect until a treatment or vaccine became available, which he predicted could be “a two-year affair.”

Saturday morning, the Health Department clarified Oliver’s statements, saying that producing a vaccine, a process that can take 12-18 months to be developed and tested, could take two years — not Phase One.

Yeah, right.

Read the whole story here.

Even if the Virginia bureaucrats DO know exactly what they plan to do, you think they’d actually spell out the whole plan in the beginning? Better to give the peons the bad news in increments. That way the masses have turned into frogs in a boiling pot of water.

Not content with destroying the 2A, Virginia now going after the First Amendment

Not content with working hard to disarm law-abiding citizens, Virginia is now turning their attention to silencing their citizens.

On January 16, Virginia House Delegate member Jeffrey Bourne (demorat) presented HB 1627 entitled, “Threats and harassment of certain officials and property.”

The bill is to amend other codes relating to threats and harassment of certain officials and property. Obviously threatening a government official should be a no-no. BUT, get a look at THIS text:

“§ 18.2-152.7:1. Harassment by computer; penalty: If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he shall be is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. A violation of this section may be prosecuted in the jurisdiction in which the communication was made or received or in the City of Richmond if the person subjected to the act is one of the following officials or employees of the Commonwealth: the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”

Read the whole bill here.

Who gets to define these terms thrown in the bill: obscene, vulgar, profane or indecent?

And I love the fact that demorats are going to be able to determine what is an “immoral act.”

This is RICH coming from the party that promotes homosexuality, anal sex, self mutilation under the guise of transgenderism, child drag queens and fisting, among other degenerate acts.

The Virginia General Assembly didn’t care what the 22,000 gun rights rally attendees had to say about their Second Amendment rights. Yet apparently they are very concerned with what you have to say about them striping those rights.

Dangerous times in Virginia, very dangerous times.

Why a Red Flag Law is dangerous: democrat language and rhetoric

On Monday gun rights activists gathered in Richmond, Virginia to make their case against the gun-control demorats in that state.

The rally was peaceful and not one fight broke out – very much the exact opposite of Antifa gatherings. Heck, attendees at the rally even cleaned up after themselves!

But that hasn’t stopped the media and demorat gun grabbers from portraying the attendees as dangerous, racists white nationalists. See the following examples:

Rep. Don Beyer (demorat): “Annual gun lobby day protest in Richmond drew large numbers of white nationalists, militias, and racist conspiracy theorists this year. Neo-Nazis tried to use this rally to launch violent attacks. Trump’s symbolism and memories of Charlottesville are vivid in many minds today.”

HuffPo: “The Colossal Gun Rally In Richmond Was Co-Opted By Extremists

Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam: “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”

Reported by Turning Point USA: “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says today’s Peaceful Pro-2A #VirginiaRally sent an “explicit and implicit message” of “don’t you dare enact your policies, if you do we will use these guns against you.”

Media Hogg: “How many of these people do you think would support the Black Panthers right to carry? Or armed resistance to the white militias that stole the North American continent? Answer: none because they only want guns to enforce white supremacy.”

David Rothschild (a Twitter blue-checked verified economist): “The White Men (and they are all White Men, because non-White Men would not be safe in this crowd) are explicitly TERRORIZING US to demonstrate to lawmakers they will cause more TERROR if they pass gun safety measures the voters wanted and voted them into office to pass.”

Another one of David’s tweets: “The FACT that there were a handful of minorities at the rally designed to terrorize the Virginia lawmakers AND no one got shot, does invalidate the stated goals of the rally to terrorize Virginia lawmakers. Nor does it make the movement inclusive.”

As you can see, the narrative is that there were very, very dangerous people and gun owners at this rally.

Why is their hyperbole so dangerous? Because of this: “Virginia Senate advances ‘red flag’ gun law, despite rally”

From the AP article:

“The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.”

I’d be curious to see the red flag law text that defines how a petitioner can deem someone is “dangerous” to others. Because based upon the inflammatory language demorats use, they will always deem us gun owners as a “danger.”

NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today

Yesterday Ben Collins, a reporter for NBC News, tried to frame the narrative for the Lobby Day protest in Virginia today. He tweeted – then deleted – the following:

He tweeted this because three men suspected of being members of a neo-Nazi hate group, including a former reservist in the Canadian Army, had weapons and discussed traveling Virginia’s rally.

After being schooled, he deleted the tweet and issued this correction:

“Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia.

The Lobby Day protest is and has traditionally been a gun rights rally, but white nationalists, including militant group The Base, have been planning violent action at the event.”

According to Breitbart, Moms Demand and Gov. Coonman have been trying to set the same narrative.

How ironic that a reporter warns others to verify information while he’s spreading #fakenews about an event that has yet to occur. Gotta get their narrative out there so it can be repeated and shared so the truth won’t matter.

Quite typical of the liberal hacks in media today.

The liberal logic of Gov. “Coonman” Northam

Last night I decided to checkout Coonman’s Twitter timeline to see what he was saying about gun rights in Virginia.

Instead I was given an opportunity to see some of his liberal logic on display regarding abortion and children.

He retweeted his wife’s tweet (from 1/2019): “For the next four years @RalphNortham and I look forward to working to make a difference in the lives of children. To me that is what #TheWayAhead is all about. Let’s start at the beginning with our greatest treasure. Our children.

Following that, Coonman retweeted Senator Saslaw’s tweet: “As my friend, @RalphNortham, would say. There’s no excuse that a group of legislators, most of whom are men, should be telling women what they can and cannot do with their bodies. In response to a retweet of this: NARAL Pro-Choice VA @NARALVirginia: “.@SenatorLocke and @JennMcClellanVA bills to repeal some TRAP restrictions were rolled together by the Education & Health Committee and will now be voted on as one. @SenatorLocke: “Women know what they’re doing.” #REPEALAct

I guess the only children we should treasure are the ones women deem are #TheWayAhead.

Liberal logic: It’s not designed to make sense.

“Pacific Islander” doctor arrested for performing unnecessary surgeries on women, including hysterectomies

Dr. Javaid Perwaiz

The good doctor that was arrested is Javaid Perwaiz, 69, of Chesapeake, Virginia. The USMS Norfolk arrested him on Friday and he was booked into the Western Tidewater Regional Jail.

The arresting record describes him as “Asian/Pacific Islander.”

The good doctor is neither of those descriptors – he’s originally from Pakistan.

According to WJLA, the doctor was charged with one count each of health care fraud and making false statements relating to health care matters.

This arrest all began because of a tip from an employee last year to the FBI. WJLA states that the doctor subjected Medicaid patients (four in total) to unwanted procedures including hysterectomies and tubal ligation.

Apparently the affidavit completed by the FBI states that in 2014 a woman learned that Perwaiz had removed her Fallopian tubes without her consent or knowledge.

Scott Daughtery of The Virginian-Pilot has an extensive story about this case including more details about the unwanted/unauthorized procedures. This includes the fact that the arrested doctor was performing so many procedures that hospital staff had a difficult time “keeping up.”

Read the whole scary story here.

From the arrested doctor’s web page:

“Dr. Perwaiz has practiced in the Chesapeake region for over 30 years, providing expert and individualized care to his patients. Personally following each and every patient throughout their pregnancy, he is available 24/7 to meet all of your requests and expectations.

Educated abroad, Dr. Perwaiz has practiced in the Chesapeake Region for over 30 years. He is dedicated to the promotion of healthcare to women from adolescence to menopause and beyond. His training and experience truly qualifies him as an expert in the care of low and high risk pregnancies. He has delivered thousands of healthy babies. His surgical skills are unparalleled, from laparoscopic surgery, cesarean section, hysterectomy, to more complicated gynecologic repair.“

Guess the doctor should have added this caveat to his web page: “Whether you want it or not.”

Intelligence agent arrested for leaking secrets to journalists, one of them his girlfriend

Henry Kyle Frese Twitter profile

Good. Now he needs a serious punishment.

From NY Post: The feds busted a Defense Intelligence Agency worker Wednesday for leaking classified national defense information to two journalists in 2018 and 2019 — one of whom he was shacking up with.

Henry Kyle Frese, 30, a counterintelligence analyst from Alexandria, Virginia, who had a Top Secret security clearance, was indicted Tuesday on two counts of willful transmission of national defense information to persons not entitled to receive it.

“Frese was caught red-handed disclosing sensitive national security information for personal gain,” said John C. Demers, assistant attorney general for national security, who cited ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vow to pursue leakers as the motivation for the probe.

“Frese betrayed the trust placed in him by the American people — a betrayal that risked harming the national security of this country. This is one of six unauthorized disclosure cases the Department has charged in just over two years, and we will continue in our efforts to punish and deter this behavior.”

According to court documents, between mid-April and early May 2018, Frese took classified intelligence reports, some of which were unrelated to his job duties, and using his cellphone, gave top secret information about a foreign country’s weapons systems to an unnamed journalist.

Frese and the journalist had the same residential address for a year starting in August 2017, and, based on Frese’s social media pages, “it appears that they were involved in a romantic relationship for some or all of that period of time,” the feds said in a statement.

The release of the unspecified secrets could be “expected to cause exceptionally grave harm to the national security of the United States,” they said, declining to elaborate.

The first journalist then asked Frese if he would be willing to help another journalist who was her colleague. The names of the journalists and the news organizations they worked for were not revealed.

“Frese stated that he was ‘down’ to help Journalist 2 if it helped Journalist 1 because he wanted to see Journalist 1 ‘progress,’” the statement said.

The first journalist would ask Frese for certain information for articles she was writing for an unnamed publication, and she published at least eight articles that were allegedly based on classified information.

The second journalist also published articles based on the information.

If convicted, Frese faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison on each count.

The feds would not say during a conference call whether the two journalists would be prosecuted, or talk about specifics.

Fairfax County Police suspend officer after he cooperated with ICE warrant

Fairfax County, Virginia Police Chief Roessler released a statement yesterday regarding the suspension of one of their own for cooperating with ICE. From the statement:

“On Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019, at 2:46 p.m., a FCPD officer was handling a traffic accident at Harrison Lane at South Kings Highway in the Alexandria section of the county.

The officer found that one driver did not have a Virginia Operator’s license and obtained the driver’s information to conduct a check to verify the DMV record. During the query of the of the driver’s information, the officer received notification from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE), that the driver was wanted by ICE for an administrative violation warrant on file for the failure to appear for a deportation hearing.

The officer then confirmed the information through the Fairfax County Department of Public Safety Communication’s Teletype Section, which is responsible for verification of all warrants with the originating agencies.

The officer then contacted the ICE agent that was listed as the point of contact on the confirmation of the warrant. The ICE agent advised the officer that they were close by and responding to the location of the traffic crash.

The FCPD officer then issued a uniform summons to the driver for not having an operator’s license. The driver signed the summons. However, the officer then decided to detain the driver through a custodial detention and turned over custody to the ICE agent.

Since 2007, the FCPD General Order 601-Arrest procedures (VIII c. 5. e.) is very clear on this matter:

If the response reads “OUTSTANDING ADMINISTRATIVE WARRANT OF REMOVAL” and the individual is not in custody or being taken into custody for any other violation of law, officers shall not confirm the hit through LESC and shall not take the individual into custody based solely upon the IVF hit. The majority of such administrative warrants represent civil violations of immigration law.

In addition, training at our Academy, as clearly outlined in lesson plans, as well as in-service training reinforces to our personnel that we do not enforce nor detain for administrative warrants and we have no authority to enforce federal law. We have also been working closely with community members and advocates to review our General Orders in this regard.

As a matter of full transparency to our community – our police officer violated our longstanding policy and deprived a person of their freedom, which is unacceptable. We have been informed by ICE that the driver was released after three hours and issued an ankle monitor. When I learned of this event, I directed an immediate internal investigation to look at all factors in this matter to ensure that all are held accountable for this violation.

Our county is one of the most diverse counties in the nation and no one should have the perception that FCPD is acting as a civil immigration agent for ICE. This matter damages our reputation and the longstanding policy that I have stated many times that our officers shall not act as immigration agents.

The officer involved in this event has been relieved of all law enforcement duties pending the outcome of this investigation. It is my role as the leader of this police force to enforce our FCPD – and Fairfax County – policies and hold all accountable for their actions.”

Apparently in Fairfax County, illegal aliens are exempt from being held accountable for their actions.
